The Backbone Friends Group is holding their annual Backbone Trail Run/Walk this weekend.
Group member Roger Helmrichs says Saturday’s run/walk starts at 9 am at the Backbone Beach Lodge along the lake.
And everyone who enters the Backbone Trail Run/Walk will have a chance to win a free pair of running shoes from Thompson Shoes in Manchester.
The Backbone Trail Run/Walk was created a few years ago as a way to draw more people to the park, especially with Backbone celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2020. The Backbone Friends Group uses the proceeds from the run/walk to help raise money to improve the park.
You can register for the Backbone Trai Run/Walk the day of the race starting at 7:30 am at Backbone Beach Lodge. If you have any questions, reach out to Roger at 920-1062. And if you’d just like to come help, volunteers are welcome too – just show up between 7:30 and 8:30 am Saturday and they’ll find a task for you.
